Hey guys,

I'm leaving DDO for a while (hopefully permanently), I was going to put it off for a couple more days while I finish my arguments against Anna, but decided to just screw it and finish the round quickly. Might as well get started on bigger and better (normatively speaking - hah) things now rather than tomorrow. So this is bye for now, and more of an FYI for people who might want to contact me outside of DDO. I still love debating religion, and will probably seek other avenues to do so (blogging, or generally writing stuff/essays, not sure yet), but DDO is severally hindering my personal productivity, so it's got to go whatever my plans are going to be.

Thus, if people want to get in touch with me outside of DDO, then shoot me a PM, I will be around for tomorrow to answer them and I will give you my contact details (assuming I actually know you), otherwise contact zmikecuber or any of the online mafia regulars and they will put you in touch in some way (Mikal, Joey, AngelOfDeath, Annie, etc.), I'll gladly join/talk/argue about most things theological.

In any case, it's been fun here, I am not going to name anyone since that would only be to satisfy their selfish self-interests... and if I talk to you on a regular basis on DDO then I probably like you. If I largely ignore you...then maybe not. Thus you can qualify yourself for self-gratification =p. I leave you with the two debates I just finished today, I definitely recommend checking them out (they will reach voting period soon), see you and take care guys!

Sorry to see you depart, Envisage. I've greatly enjoyed your contributions.

Of course, if you're reading this, then you're guilty of the very self-gratification you accused others of!

Either way, please accept my best wishes for your further endeavours.

Good bye, Envisage. I wish you the best of luck in life.
You're a genius, and your contributions to the site have been invaluable.
I'll miss you =(

Goodbye.

I await your return. People tend to be unable to escape.

Something I do from time to time is I just take breaks from DDO for a time, a week, a month a few months, half a year ?

I would hope that you do something similar and not permanently go away for ever.

Stay connected and PM your future contact. I enjoyed reading your debates. Unfortunately I agreed with your positions or I would have expressed my disagreement to draw your attention.
I am sure you will be back. How can you resist beating a bunch of religious fundamentalists already certified as mentally ill? They would be banned on most sites.

See you Envisage. Your contributions will be missed, especially now when the crazies seem to be taking over the asylum. (But then, that is probably what helped to drive you away).

Nice chatting with you, best of luck.

@Envisage was an inspiration to me. I'm sorry to see him leave; I would say he was one of (in my opinion) the best debaters on the site, rivaling legends like Subutai, RoyLatham, Bluesteel, and Zarroette. I await your return, Envisage!

I completely understand your reasons.

The forum will be a poorer place without you. If you ever return in the future, no matter for how long, it will be regarded by thinking posters as a good thing.

Good luck.

Maybe if Envisage is challenged more he might change his mind. Surely there must be a few bright Christians left to tease his instincts.

As much as I will miss you, I think that it is good that you've had the strength to release yourself from something you no longer find worth your time. A better life isn't lived in solidarity and comfort. It's filled with risk and adventure, which you seem to have realised. I hope you find whatever it is you're looking for, too.

But please come back in the future, if only for a week or two, so we can split our overall debate tie (the longer you wait, the closer I will be to being as good as bluesteel). I would also like to remind you of your nationality (again) =)
